NAME
       ydecode - Usenet	file decoder

SYNOPSIS
       ydecode	[-d,  --debug]	[-f,  --force]	[-k, --keep] [-l, --list] [-o,
       --output=dir]  [-p,  --paths]  [-q,  --quiet]  [-r,  --recursive]  [-s,
       --scan]	[-t, --test] [--strict]	[--verify] [--help] [--version]	[FILE]
       ...

DESCRIPTION
       ydecode decodes the files specified on the command  line	 according  to
       the  yEnc  Usenet  encoding format.  If no regular files	are specified,
       ydecode will scan any directories specified on the command line	and/or
       the current directory for yEnc encoded files, and decode	them.

OPTIONS
       -d, --debug
	      Write  messages  useful for debugging to stderr while program is
	      operating.

       -f, --force
	      If the output file already exists, overwrite the	existing  file
	      without prompting.

       -k, --keep
	      If  an  error  occurs during the decoding	process, do not	remove
	      the erroneous output file.

       -l, --list
	      Only list	information about encoded files	specified on the  com-
	      mand line	or found during	scanning.

       -o, --output=dir
	      Create output in dir instead of the current directory.

       -p, --paths
	      Obey relative pathnames to files in the encoded data.  For exam-
	      ple, if an encoded  file	specifies  the	output	file  name  as
	      files/new/bigfile.mp3,  ydecode will by default ignore the paths
	      and save the file	as bigfile.mp3.	 If the	-p  option  is	speci-
	      fied, the	output file will be saved as files/new/bigfile.mp3.

       -q, --quiet
	      Try to avoid writing output while	running.  The only output that
	      will occur is error messages.

       -r, --recursive
	      When scanning for	encoded	files, scan directories	recursively.

       -t, --test
	      Operate as usual,	decoding and testing the integrity of all  in-
	      put  files (or files found during	scanning), but do not actually
	      create output files.

       --strict
	      If this option is	requested, more	strict checks against the yEnc
	      specification will be performed while testing or decoding	files.
	      The decoded data output will be unaffected, but warning messages
	      will be output when non-compliant	data is	found.	This option is
	      highly recommended for individuals who want  to  implement  yEnc
	      encoding	into  their  own applications, to test the validity of
	      their compressed data.

       --verify
	      Synonym for `--test --strict'.

       --help Display program help and exit.

       --version
	      Output version number and	exit.
